The FRISCHI BIKE CHALLENGE is back!
After missing out on the last two years (in 2003 we had 1500 competitors) the 6th edition of this "Mountain Bike challenge for everyone" is resurrected in ENGADIN-St.Moritz, same location as my FRISCHI BIKE SCHOOL.
The bike festival in the Engadin starts with a short track race in Pontresina, June 30th, followed by the Frischi Bike Challenge in Celerina, July 1st and finishes with a Swisspower Cup race in Samedan on Sunday, July 2nd.
Four different courses from 19km for beginners, up to 62km with 1620 meters of climbing for the cracks.
The competitors will be guided by my pro friends plus me. Tom Ritchey, Hans Rey and Bart Brentjens will be there, along with other pros from the scene.
At the pasta party on Saturday night we will present the pro riders and follow with interviews and a show. The ALTA REZIA Freeride movie with Hans and myself will be shown as well.
